Today it is absolutely essential to have Android Auto in our car, a Google operating system that allows us to blur the distance between the car and our mobile phone, ideal for making voice commands and for using applications such as Google Maps.
The Android Auto 8.6 beta version was recently launched, and as usual, Google does not offer information regarding all the news included in this version of its operating system, so it is the users themselves who have to venture out to discover where the What’s new and what bugs have been fixed.
Well, in this Android Auto 8.6 update, in addition to continuing with the Coolwalk renewal, the operating system has updated the settings menu to align it with the rest of the application in terms of its design.
Specifically, Google has opted for material design for Android Auto settings screen refresh. It should be noted that this design is aimed at the configuration menu that we see on the mobile device and not on the main unit when Android Auto is activated.
Material Design, but not for everyone
As we said, this new configuration interface is that of Material Design, so it comes with the characteristic elements such as scrollable headers and new toggles. There is also support for dark mode.
According to the reports, this change originally debuted in Android Auto 8.5, but it is fully functional for all beta users in Android Auto 8.6, but what is unknown is when it will be available for the stable version of the system operational.
Possibly Google has proposed to renew the entire experience of Android Auto, but the most worrying thing is that there is no approximate date of availability for the rest of the users, with which many will not enjoy coolwalk and others until 2023.
